The 12 best hand creams as chosen by The Independent!Feb 15, 2017
Hands are as exposed as our faces and yet we hardly put any thought into skincare or protection for them. Until, that is, winter hits and they start chapping. Modern hand creams don't just boost moisture levels, they're now anti-agers too and can reduce the appearance of age spots and fine lines, and help combat eczema. From sink-side pump dispensers to balms, creams and crème-gloves, we've rounded up the best hand nourishers in the business.
Nasties-free (including no mineral oil and fragrance), this British niche-brand bases its hand cream on essential fatty acids and lipids to boost hydration and reinforce the skin's natural moisture barrier. While red algae targets age spots and keratin amino acid ensures nails are kept strong and healthy. Palmarosa, clary sage, rosemary, ylang ylang, jasmine and mimosa also give this cream a stunning fresh floral scent.
